A Simple Approach to Living With Less

Moms Standing Up for Minimalism

When I started writing about minimalism last year, I didn’t know of any other minimalist moms online. When I first heard about minimalism, I felt like a light had been turned on inside my head and I was so excited about it that I just wanted to share it with everyone. I didn’t see any other moms that were writing about minimalism back then, but I am so excited that there are more and more minimalist mom blogs popping up all over the place.

I follow a lot of minimalist blogs and many of them aren’t written by moms and I still thoroughly enjoy them. But as a mom, there’s just something that I find comforting hearing about how other moms are battling the toy issues and the organizational challenges that come with being a mom and running a household.

A Fun New Project

Some of you may remember that I started writing about minimalism on my site, Minimalist Moms. That site began as my personal blog about my minimalist journey. At the first of the year I transitioned the site here to Minimalist at Home.

Recently I decided to turn Minimalist Moms into a one-stop-shop for the latest updates from other Minimalist Moms. It’s sort of an experiment really to see if anyone finds it beneficial. It’s nothing fancy or gorgeous, but I already had the website set up and just sitting there, so I thought I’d put it to good use.

The new home page has automatic updates from over a dozen different minimalist moms all in one place. I love to see what other minimalist moms are up to and this seemed like a fun way to do that. It saves me a ton more time than scrolling through my RSS feed reader. Plus, I get to see the latest 5 posts from everyone so I’m less likely to miss something.

I hope you’ll come over to check it out and recommend it to anyone you think might enjoy it. If you know of other moms who blog about minimalism and would like to recommend them, please feel free to contact me.
